About RADIO MAX

Back in the days when cassette tapes were still getting mangled by various recorders, the first in-store radio programme to feature live presenters was founded: Radio Max. The mission: to revolutionize communications and the way the POS is staged so that a perfect symbiosis of message and experience can emerge in sales spaces of all stripes.

After accomplishing that mission Radio Max is now turning towards multi-sensory moon landings. As a full-service provider in retail, we are a company that is all about the right emotions, for our customers and their customers.

Pitch your solution & boost your business!

Join the RADIO MAX Startup Factory by submitting your idea now. Get the chance to collaborate with a strong partner and shape the future of retail.

FAQ

Is it necessary to travel to Austria for the Startup Factory?

Depending on the intended cooperation, individual talks will be held. In general, we are constantly evaluating the situation. If traveling is not possible due to COVID-19 we will facilitate the cooperation and workshops remotely.

What is the working language?

Workshop input, documentation, and pitches will be held in German and/or English. While working in your team: if 100% of your team members prefer German, French or any other language spoken within your team, that is not a problem!

How can I apply for this program?

Fill out the application form and provide us with the core information about your company (It takes approximately 15 minutes). If we require further information, we will contact you for a personal interview.
